    I expected it to be a lot harder to locate than one ebay store. In the immortal words of Gob…..

    Come on!

    So they are “made in Peru” acc. to the Ebay listings, yet the Ebay seller is located in “north Miami beach” and the Etsy seller is located in CA. Lovely lovely. And WTF is the “Cusco” school of painting?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuzco_School

    “The Cuzco School (Escuela Cuzqueña) was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 17th and 18th centuries.”

    I’m flagging these paintings — they should be tagged “vintage”!

    Up to 100 now. And not as vintage as the Spice Girls, I don’t think. The importer is in Florida — this is the person who has the Ebay Store.

    The Etsy shop is in Cali. A reseller or distributor?

    They are definitely not vintage paintings. They are reproductions done in the style of the colonial painters. Unless I’ve seriously mistaken what I’ve read.

    Essentially the same deal as chinese oil painting factories….but in South America.

    Another bit to notice is that most of the paintings are done by separate people with very distinct signatures. Which is noted in the EBay shop, but not in the Etsy shop.

    Angel I’m pretty sure that Marky was being sarcastic while mentioning that they should be tagged vintage. Meaning that if they were original they were all from the 17th and 18th centuries.

    First give away for me is while reading shop announcement and the words bids and auction kept throwing red flags. Not only are they disgusting , they are lazy. Plus I love the one word tagging, ART!

    Well, they’re gone! Yippee!

    I’m immune to sarcasm on the internets unless there is heavy emoticon usage. True story.

    🙂

    My apologies for the confusion!

    Keep up the great calling-out work, everyone!
